KUALA LUMPUR, April 16 — The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) said it will not bow to pressure after one of its senior officers was sent a live bullet and a threatening note.

MACC Deputy Chief Commissioner (Operations) Datuk Seri Azam Baki said MACC viewed the matter seriously and believed it could be related to several high-profile cases being investigated by the senior officer.

The officer found the live bullet and threatening message in his letterbox at home yesterday.

“A police report has been lodged and we urge the police to conduct a thorough investigations to identify the individual involved so that action may be taken against the culprit in accordance with the law,” he said in a statement today.

Azam added that MACC personnel will never be threatened by such acts and would continue to serve in their capacity without fear.

Meanwhile Selangor police chief Datuk Mazlan Mansor said police have so far received two police reports lodged by the senior officer attached to MACC Putrajaya.

He said a task force has been formed to investigate the case and urged those with information to contact police.

“We also urge the public not to speculate on the case and allow police to carry out investigations first,” he said.
